You know when you are sitting on the plane, nice and warm and the guys are up in those bucket trucks de-icing it? Have you ever wondered what that would be like? Watch this video to find out about the cold but exciting job...

"Enroll in Rapid Rewards today and start earning towards your next vacation! No blackout dates and no point expiration means that every seat on every flight is a reward seat and that makes your rewards within reach like never before."
They are absolutely 100% full of shit. If you don't book a flight under your name (you can buy tickets for others all the time but it has to go under YOUR Rapid Rewards account) within 2 years, they will inactivate your account and steal those points back from you. SO THEY DO EXPIRE AND THEY ARE LIARS!
+Justin Justin is the only one that got this right. Ice typically accumulates on the leading edges of wings first, this increases the stall speeds as it delaminates the airflow and lowers the Angle of Attack needed to induce a stall (typically 18* or more), critical during landing phase(s). Most instrument probes, however, are heated; example the pitot probes.
derek frost because the ice can freeze over the plane flaps which would cause the flaps not to open and you need the flaps to help the plane climb higher in the air and to slow the plane down while landing
Southwest Airlines in truly the best. All my experiences with them have always been efficient, pleasant and helpful..........always with a smile.....Their heart insignia truly signifies who they are. "Thank you" Southwest for caring and being there.
The modern deice trucks have the personnel enclosed. The cherry picker is fully enclosed and they control the spray through remote control. Hanging out of that open cherry picker breathing in all the fumes of the glycol has got to be bad for your health. It looks like fun though...
As a rampie who de-iced 8 aircraft today, 4 commercial, 2 private and 2 air force(Canadian single prop), I am damn sure that when I am finished spraying and tell the driver to tell the pilot that his aircraft is clean...I know that is clean, 100%...every aircraft that I de ice, I watch them take off to make sure that they have a positivie climb rate/gears up attitude. Pride in what you do!
If I recall correctly spraying de-icing solution directly on exposed avionics such as Pitot tubes should be avoided, but I don't see how these guys can de-ice without spraying on them. How does that work?
Richard, the fluid is essentially harmless unless large amounts were to be literally drunk directly. We usually have PPE to protect our eyes available, but it can be difficult to see through goggles covered in fluid, so it is a trade off.
